Yes, I realize that all this stuff I'm doing is about anxiety over the election and pandemic. But, if spending several hours baking sweets and cutting a new quilt project are how I deal with it, that doesn't seem so bad to me. I'm sure there are lots of people having a worse go of it than I am.
For the new project, Rob has asked me to reproduce this quilt. Some of you may remember this quilt. It's an early quilt that was 3/4 quilted when I realized I'd made a mistake and I picked all the quilting out of it and started over, and replaced the border. It's supposed to look like falling leaves building up on the ground. It looks like someone developed that pattern and they used fewer leaves and more background space. I'll likely do some of that, too.
Rob wants me to reproduce it in batiks. So, I've gone to the bin and pulled out my scraps and am away! There's about 600 pieces and I've cut about 100, but that includes ironing all the fabrics and scraps I cut from. Hopefully there won't be that much more of that.
